What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is a non-surgical, injectable gel filler used to smooth away common facial wrinkles and add volume to your skin.

Is Juvederm the same as Botox?

No, contrast to popular believe, Juvederm is not the same as Botox. Botox is injected directly into the muscle temporarily paralyzing it and is most commonly injected into places such as the forehead to get rid of frown lines.

Juvederm may be used to rejuvenate multiple problem areas.  From smile lines to vertical lip lines, you can smooth away unwanted wrinkles and restore natural contours. Unlike Botox, Juvederm gel is made up of a natural body substance called hyaluronic acid that supports volume and rehydrates your dermas.

Is Juvederm healthy for my skin?

Yes. Juvederm is very healthy for your skin. Juvederm gel is made of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies.  This substance is responsible for assisting in hydration and firmness of our skin but over time it starts to dissipate, causing our skin to wrinkle and fold. Because Juvederm rehydrates your skin, summer is a perfect time to reap its benefits! Receiving Juvederm treatments can help your skin bounce back, rehydrate and fill in those fine lines!

How long does Juvederm procedure take and how long does it last?

The Juvederm procedure usually lasts anywhere from around 30 minutes. The results are instant and there is no recovery time after the procedure is done. Want to get it on your lunch break? No problem! Generally, Juvederm treatments last anywhere from 9 months to a year varying on the treatment.
